Description

Getting "Inside Out and Outside In" the Relational Montage of an Eating Disorder

Dr. Jean Petrucelli, Ph.D.


3 CE Credits


Description:

Eating disorders present particular treatment challenges to clinicians in how they engage with and welcome bodies—their patients and their own—into the therapeutic dialogue. Interpersonal treatment with patients struggling with eating disorders involves an ongoing complicated negotiation. This negotiation is between attending to the direct intervention of the symptom while simultaneously stepping away from the pull to do so. The goal is to explore what an intervention means to the patient and ultimately to understand what role the symptom plays in the patient’s intra-psychic and interpersonal world.

Dr. Petrucelli will present an approach to treating anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder beyond symptom alleviation with the initial phase involving direct symptom intervention within the framework of an interpersonally based analytic treatment. With an eye towards understanding the neurobiological underpinnings, the concepts of attachment theory, self-regulation, affect regulation, dissociation, and the multiplicity of self-states and body-states--- the implications for clinical treatment can be woven into the bridge one needs to build to enter the ritual-filled world of the eating disordered patient. Cultural influence, etiology, clinical conundrums, roadblocks and treatment goals will be considered in developing an understanding of how to reach these often ‘unreachable’ patients.


At the conclusion of this program, participants will be able to:

1) Utilize interpersonal perspectives in the treatment of anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorders;

2) Describe eating disordered patients’ difficulties and capacities to self soothe and regulate internal experience, as a way to understand how to work more effectively with the relational component of the eating disorder as it plays out in treatment and in the world;

3) Describe the concept of dissociation and at least one dimension of the theory related to its use in clinical work with patients with eating disorders;

4) Explain how disordered eating is the psychic inability to care for one’s self and to make better use of this perspective through the contexts of attachment, self-state and body-state theory, self-regulation and affect regulation issues;

5) Discuss the necessity to work with the symptom with action-oriented techniques to enhance clinical treatment with patients with eating disorders;

6) Discuss the inter-generational transmission of body image disturbances.
